Subject RE: [users@httpd] Rewrite but keep original URL in browser
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2003 08:05:11 GMT
Plain text please...

You can use mod_rewrite with the [P] flag (for "proxy"). This will cause
apache to fetch the remote page and serve it directly, i.e. it will not
send a redirect to the client.

Alternatively, since the mapping is quite simple, you can use mod_proxy
directly, e.g.

ProxyPass		/
ProxyPassReverse	/

in the config.

PS - there is a difference between redirecting and proxying; I wrote
this yesterday in response to an uncannily similar question

Subject: [users@httpd] Rewrite but keep original URL in browser

I have been reading the mod rewrite guides on the apache homepage, but
did not find an answer.
I am looking for a solution for the following problem:
I have a user with domain
The user has it's webpage at url
The url should be redirected to but the browser bar should still say
Is this possible using Apache's mod rewrite? Is their another solution
then using an empty frame?
